Museum 2024 Season Opening - Harry McDaniel Photo Exhibit in Museum community room

McDaniel, a Fort Recovery resident and postmaster in the 1910s, took hundreds of glass negative photos in Fort Recovery and surrounding areas. These photos were salvaged years ago and have now been digitized, with future plans to make them available on-line to the community. Come see a first preview of over 75 photographs in McDaniel’s collection. You will be amazed at the quality of both McDaniel’s photography and the digitization of these images!
